I cerify people in CPR and first aid. My prices are below most quotes. Many times I get a request for one person. It is unlikely that I will send a quote, because if they respond, I pay a large percentage of what Thumbtack charges me. Many time I get a request for large groups and never here back. In the last few months I have received requests from other instructors who are "testing the waters", and I get charged for that. I wish I had a way of calling people who are requesting a quote. I send out many quotes and never hear back. With other forms of advertising, I talk to the customer directly and close the deal 95% of the time. Much lower with Thumbtack.

I am fairly happy with Thumbtack. I would, however, like to submit things to concider for my particular profession. I do would not expect you to have in depth knowledge for every field. There are several types of CPR certification. BLS CPR/AED, Pediatric CPR/first aid, CPR and first aid, firat aid, ACLS, BLS, PALS and Heartsaver CPR. All have diferenence in price, qualifications, licensing and legalities. As the format used now, every request says, CPR and first aid. I am spending money to find out exactly what they need, only to fined out that I have under charged, or did not get the bid because I over charged. If I can be of any help in the future, please let me know.
